German ships sunk at Ostend Sept 8th 1940

Postby Andy H » Sun Aug 16, 2009 12:15 pm

Three British MTB's reported sinking/damaging two German ships in Ostend. One that was 'sunk' was reportedly a German ammunition ship, whilst the other a general cargo ship.

Does anyone have further deails of these German losses?

Regards
You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life.

Hi Leandros

No sure if you still frequent Feldgrau but I would like some info to back up your rather :oops: statement in regards the RN sinking a pier :shock:

The MTB's involved were MTB 14, 15 & 17

Well, since there is no information on such ships sunk In Ostende at the stated date I suppose their torpedoes hit the ground (a pier..?) as they often did. At least I could not find such information at Rohwer and Hummelchen. Plenty of German activity, though.
